After months and months without any rain, Sousa got rain!! It was after 9:00 and the four of us Sisters were back in our apartment when the clouds open and let loose! With the intensity of the rain, we shut the windows to keep out the water, and went about our normal routine. The Elders had warned us that the apartment had issues with the rain, but none of us were concerned. About 15 minutes after the rain had started, I was sitting on my bed writing in my journal when Sister Borges walked into my room and said, "Hey, look down at your feet!" I looked down, and saw a huge puddle of water slowing creeping out from under my bed and surrounding my feet! I looked back at the window - completely closed - yet, somehow our room was becoming an indoor swimming pool! We quickly moved everything off the floor and into a dry place, but other than that there wasn't much we could do except pray that our mattresses would float! As I slopped around my room in our puddle of water, getting ready for bed, I couldn't help but think, "Yep, now this is what a mission is all about!"
